Cadence with the Scosche Rhythm 24 Armband

I was unsuccessful in using the cadence sensor included in the Scosche Rhythm 24 armband with the Peloton App.  The values the Peloton App displayed were ridiculously out of the realm of reality.  It estimated my RPMs between 100,000 and 1 million per minute.  The heart rate sensor was spot on, but the cadence values were useless.
