There is a setting down the bottom of the Sliders section that swaps Imperial and Metric .
You will be best off with two layers one showing metric and one showing Imperial .
I will check but I think Facer does the conversion .
Each layer will have a User Preference Conditional in the Opacity Field .

If this does not help get Back .

$#UNITSYS#==IMPERIAL?100:0$

$#UNITSYS#==METRIC?100:0$

There is a way of having all this on one line . Trust me that is not a good place to start .
You will Tap your watch face three times and navigate Right in Facer to find the Facer Settings on your watch to change from Imperial To Metric.

Sorry . This is the one liner . Because Facer Does Do the conversion .
My confusion .

Be Aware there are some problems on some watches with Wind speed . Just go for it . If you get a user who is unhappy we will sort it .

#WND# $#UNITSYS#=IMPERIAL?mph:ms$

Thanks ill give it a go.

Try using:
$#UNITSYS#=IMPERIAL?(round(#WND#)) mph:(round(3.61*#WND#)) kmh$

Works fine, it will auto-show mph or kmh, depending on user watch setting.

Do not use meter per second because nobody understands it (m/s is official) but it’s the same as telling your car speed in m/s, it’s correct but not natural…

Some countries USE mps for windspeed so just use whatever you like or prefer - depends on your audience really. Meters per second for wind and kilometers per hour (or mph) when driving is not unusual.
I won’t at this point mention knots - no doubt it will turn up eventually :smiley:

Hey lets go Nautical . All these things can be easily converted to suit. I like Degrees C for temprature. But Mph for speed. Mps is the SI convention for Wind Speed ( and a lot of Science ) so I left it so on the watch I made for Myself and Double it for MPH which is near enough. I would not use the Data on my Facer Watch Face For Navigation but I would for gaving a Dip in the sea. Not Today. If you are sailing your Yacht arround Cape Horn I recomend Investing in some more Expensive Instruments.:rofl::joy:

Yes, m/s is official in EU so it is not wrong unit.

Km/h is more natural to understand: when you are driving your car 30 km/h and stick your hand out of the window, that is how 30 km/h wind feels. That’s why I like it more.

And if I ever buy a boat I guess I’ll talk in knots - just to show off. :wink: :smile:

And I promise: you’ll be invited.

You are ON. I have an Analogue Wind Direction Finder I can bring. Suck finger and point Skywards.

I knew (knots) would turn up eventually … 1 knot is 1 nautical mile per hour, 1 nautical mile = 1.15 miles or 1.85 km, so 1 knot is 1.85 kph or, in my amphibious car - 0.51ms. My question is how to get knots from steps on my watch?

Find the steps per Meter Conversion and do the Maths . There have been extensive Topics on steps to Meters on here .

Sorry - it was an attempt at humour!
As you say steps to distance is well covered here

Our friend russellcresser loves math challenges.
If you inspect his watchfaces you’ll find insane things.
As I said before: witchcraft!

Listed .I am so sorry . My Fault . I am very distracted . Please forgive me . I have jumped into the PRO Pool and am thinking of a Surfer/Sailor Face with Tides and Wind etc . I am contemplating all the Conversions I can think of . The Amphibian is going to be a nice challenge . We could use the Gyro and Accelerometer to detect the transition to Wet .

Thank you so much . I am not a mathematician . Everything I do is trial and error . it all takes ages and it is mostly about Butchering the Formulas that the Giants have left as a Crumb Trail to help us Grow . The trail is in this Community . There are some Trees growing in the Way but there is a Path .

What did I say… a new watchface will come out of this.
