Direto ERG Mode and resistance

I have the Direto and have been riding mainly on Zwift. I have noticed that ERG mode doesn't match up with the power I am putting through. For example, if I am doing a block that is 100 watts, I can be pedalling at a constant cadence and the power I get back goes all over the place and is very spiky. I tried to test it using the etraining app on PC to set certain power levels and the graph I get back is also very spiky and doesn't look consistent.

I am connected to PC using Ant+ on an extension cable so the sensor is right by the trainer.

Is there a setting I am missing?

As Direto is very precise in reading power, it shows all the oscillations in power you really have when pedaling.
Also pro riders have those oscillation.
If you prefer to have a more average power tracking, you can increase the power smooth option in the advanced settings (my e-training app).
If you feel that the oscillations are too high, please contact the customer care at adding an exported training (csv or tcx format) so the guys there can analyze it.
