How to Change Apple Watch Activity Units from Mile to Kilometer in Workout App on watchOS 3

Apple Watch is not just an extension of your iPhone, with which you have paired your watch. There are countless features that you can enjoy on a standalone watch, i.e. without pairing it with iPhone. Perhaps these features make Apple Watch one of the best smartwatches in the world.

Fitness freaks have always found Apple Watch one of the super cool fitness gadgets as well as fitness trackers. In its latest watchOS 3 update, Apple has introduced many brilliant features for users. Now, fitness conscious users can customize workouts on Apple Watch; they can also enable and disable stand reminder.

If you are doing fitness activities like running or walking every day, you can certainly measure how long you have run or walked. Your Apple Watch stores this information in Workout app; but the default distance unit is in mile. And therefore, many users find it difficult to measure the distance they run or walk every day. There are many countries who measure distance in kilometres, and users from these countries need to change distance units from miles to KM on Apple Watch.
