Hi everyone
I just bought a cadence sensor for my indoor bike, and paired it with my Tomtom runner 2. When starting the activity the watch finds the sensor and records cadence activity, with ir doesn't register any distance or speed data. I adjusted wheel measures. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    That is not possible as pedal strokes do not correlate to tire rotations unless you are on a single speed bike. The back tire travels a different distance on each pedal stroke depending on what ear you are in.
