1. A system, comprising:

  • an analyte sensor configured to be in contact with bodily fluid under a skin surface to monitor a concentration of an analyte, the analyte sensor further configured to generate signals corresponding to the monitored concentration of the analyte;

    a first receiving device; and

    a second receiving device, comprising;

    a communication component configured to receive the signals corresponding to the monitored concentration of the analyte, and to communicate the signals corresponding to the monitored concentration of the analyte to the first receiving device; and

    a processor unit coupled to the communication component, the processor unit configured to;

    determine a frequency of interaction over a time period based on user operation of the second receiving device and/or the first receiving device;

    compare the frequency of interaction to at least one predetermined target level of interaction;

    output an alert to notify the user when the frequency of interaction is below the at least one predetermined target level of interaction;

    modify the at least one predetermined target level of interaction based on at least the frequency of interaction and the monitored analyte concentration during the time period; and

    display an output indicator on the second receiving device when the frequency of interaction is at least equal to the at least one predetermined target level of interaction.
