Apparently inconsistent behaviour of Convert[#, 1] &

Convert[Sqrt[Meter^2], 1]
>> Meter

Convert[2*Sqrt[Meter^2], 1]
>> \!\(Convert::"incomp" \(\(:\)\(\ \)\) "Incompatible units
      in \!\(2\\ \@\(Meter\^2\)\) and \!\(1\)."\)
>> 2*Sqrt[Meter^2]

Why does the latter conversion not succeed when the first one does?
