What type of device reading do you use in each type of test? Are there good or bad things to use a reading mode and / or another? What do you recommend me and why?
Thanks MetatrainingSST Martí

For the majority of cases, the default update is best. In this mode, the sensor calculates a new reading every 2 seconds and the displayed reading is the average of the 5 most recent reading (10 seconds). This helps smooth out any motion induced variations in the readings.
Researchers sometimes use the no smooth readings (new reading every 2 seconds, but no averaging) or the fast update rate (new reading every 0.5 seconds and no averaging) when they are looking at the changes in oxygenation immediately at the onset of load. These aren't typically needed for training applications. The attached document describes how each update mode works in greater detail.
