all imperial units


(Mark „Tsu“ Mark (D)) #1

I can switch from metric to imperial, but the latter does not have all units.

Please use all imperial units if set to imperial, or create a third option full imperial.

  • For example, don’t use kg but our unit _ stone _ (st).
  • It’s _ W/st _ then.
  • Height not in cm please, use _ chain/foot _ or, if you must, foot/inch.
  • It’s not rounds, please use the word _ lap _ or _ laps _. Thanks!

Ideally you’d add an tooltip to lengths indicating that it’s imperial miles (1.6km), and not German miles (7.5km). It’s kind of ambiguous as it is.

If you want ALL imperial units, then surely you can’t use “watt” either. You would need to convert to horsepower (1HP = 746W) or foot-pound per minute. Now all you need to do is convince all the manufacturers of power meters to send imperial data to Zwift.

Good luck with determining your HP/st or ft-lb/min/st

Edit: Sorry, but I’m not sure of your weight or power abilities, so I have put together the following handy look-up table for you:

1W/kg = 0.008515883333622777 bhp/st
2W/kg = 0.017031766667245554 bhp/st
3W/kg = 0.02554765000086833 bhp/st
4W/kg = 0.03406353333449111 bhp/st
5W/kg = 0.042579416668113886 bhp/st
6W/kg = 0.05109530000173666 bhp/st
7W/kg = 0.05961118333535944 bhp/st
