This should app specific. Are you seeing the miles on a watch face? Is it from Facer or WatchMaker? If it's from one of those two apps, you should be able to switch to metric within the app's settings.

Yes sorry I wasn't more specific.
This is on the official Ticwatch faces.
There's no way to change for example from temperature in F to C.

This is a known issue, apparently caused by Google. Googling for it finds several places with comments, and seems the reason is that the watch locale (and thus units) is based on the language choice of the paired phone. If a watch app does not have its own settings for locale/language/units, it typically uses the system's settings.

Some kind of workaround that has been suggested is to e.g. switch between UK and US english settings on the phone (and possibly need to repair the watch).

I guess your phone is set to US English?
If your wear app/watchface/etc doesn't have own options you need to change it, for example to UK English.
For some reason you can't set a language independent on your watch.

To change this open the official ticwatch app. Then click on health center. After you have clicked on that, click on the person in the top right. After that you will see something called unit. Click on it and change it to Metric.

Actually, there is:
1) Open the Ticwatch app.
2) Open Health Center.
3) Tap on that icon on the top right that looks like a person.
4) Change the settings.
5) Done!

Thanks FatCat, I did this but watch face temperatures are still in F instead of C.

What specific language (US English/UK English) is your watch set on?
