Hello there, @userBPnlcbDwmj. We're glad you reached out here with your concern.
The kilojoule is very specific to Australia when it comes to this use. Sadly, as such, there isn't a feature that auto converts from calories to kilojoules. There may be some other apps you can download that will either convert either way, or just starts out in kilojoules though. While I know this is a pain, at least you can always do a bit of math and convert this over: 1 Calorie = 4.2 kJs

Thanks for the update.
I made a watchface for my Fit 2 the other day, so as a work around I'll see if I can display a new variable which is the calculation of (KCal * 4.18).
I am sorry, but kilojoules are not "very specific to Australia". Kilojoules are SI units, as opposed to Calories, or rather kcal are not, and they have not been for almost fourty years. The whole of the world (with the exception of the USA) use SI units.
To recommend doing the maths in my head is a workaround when I have a whopping great CPU on my wrist which could do it for me is just a blatant excuse.
So, basically, you are saying, I cannot get my device to display proper units because Samsung is too lazy to implement SI units, which, for me, sadly is a reason to send it back (which I will do).
Well said userZDh9UtygWJ
The joule (J) is the international standard unit of energy, used by even USA scientists and everyone else in the world. One kilowatt (kW) is exactly equal to one kilojoule per second (kJ/s).
It's time to use real units and ditch the old dumb ones.
I really wish I had known this before I got my watch. I stupidly thought it would be an option on the watch. I wish I could take my phone and watch back and swap to Apple now. Yes this is enough of a reason to swap back. Also, this was asked in Feb 2017 - It's now 2019, UP YOUR GAME SAMSUNG!
I cannot believe that a SAMSUNG REPRESENTATIVE would post such an arrogant response. I am from South Africa, and like Australia (and the rest of the world), we use scientific SI measurements. To suggest we do maths in our head as a workaround is childish and flippant.
It's 3 years later now, and still nothing has been done about this.
