Change the Measurement Units for Samsung Health

Converting miles to kilometers in your head can be difficult, but you don't have to worry. While different countries use different systems of measurement, there's no need to calculate it by yourself. You can easily change the measuring units in Samsung Health so you'll always know whether you ran 5 miles or 5 kilometers.

Note: The available units of measurement are those customary to the U.S.
