Spikes when recording with MTR sensor sitting idle on a flat surface

Hello,

I recently got my hands on a MetaTracker sensor. In order to get some idea about the battery life I initiated streaming data recording and put the sensor sit on a flat surface. Ideally, there should be no changes in the recorded values as the sensor is just sitting there, however, once every few seconds I see a handful of single data point spikes with large magnitudes (4g in case of acceleration). Could you please explain why this is happening?
