I’m looking for a list of commonly used measurements of speed (or pace) in fitness/sports for an app that I’m creating. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
miles per hour
kilometres per hour
meters per second
I think this has got most of the bases covered, but are there any that you’re aware of that I’ve missed? I think the most difficult one is swimming as I think the Americans tend to use yards instead of meters due to the length of their pools, and I’ve seen swimmers refer to pace in 50m/yards or 200m/yards pace too.
I could just include all combinations I can think of, but that would just make the lists long and messy so ideally I want to only include the most common ones.
Speed (in meters) per watt is said to be the most useful metric for making the most of running power meters but no platform I’ve come across (including the Stryd ap) provide this.
I’d be interested in any ap that calculated that for me.
Thanks for the suggestions all, sorry it took me so long to respond. Turns out getting an app in the play store took waaaaayyy longer than I thought it would, but I got it there in the end. I’d welcome any feedback anyone has as it’s my first ever app.

It’s not triathlon-specific; it’s just a general calculator. If there’s a triathlon-specific app that would be helpful, please let me know.
