1. An analyte monitoring system, comprising:

  • an analyte sensor configured to perform measurements indicative of analyte levels;

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

    receive the measurements indicative of analyte levels from the 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, andreceive and respond to one or more commands in the second power mode over a second communication protocol using a Near Field Communication (NFC) module; and

    a display device configured to;

    transmit the one or more commands to the sensor electronics unit in the second power mode using the second communication protocol;

    receive communication parameters comprising information associated with one or more encryption/decryption keys, the communication parameters being transmitted and received in the second power mode using the second communication protocol; and

    use the received communication parameters to decrypt sensor information sent to the display device over the first communication protocol by the sensor electronics unit after the first communication protocol is established by Bluetooth pairing of the display device with the sensor electronics.
