1. An analyte monitoring system, comprising:

  • an analyte sensor configured to generate sensor data indicative of analyte levels;

    a sensor electronics unit communicatively coupled to the analyte sensor, the sensor electronics unit configured to;

    process the sensor data indicative of analyte levels generated by the analyte sensor;

    operate in a first power mode and a second power mode;

    transmit sensor information when in the first power mode over a first communication protocol using a Bluetooth module; and

    receive one or more commands and respond to the received one or more commands in the second power mode via a second communication protocol using a Near Field Communication (NFC) module; and

    a display device configured to;

    receive at least some of the processed sensor data over the first communication protocol;

    present a user interface for user selection of at least one of the one or more commands;

    receive a selection of at least one of the one or more commands from a user;

    transmit the selected at least one of the one or more commands to the sensor electronics unit using the second communication protocol; and

    receive at least some of the processed sensor data over the second communication protocol in response to the selected at least one of the one or more commands.
