1. An analyte sensor system, comprising:

  • a substrate;

    a first electrode disposed on a first surface of the substrate;

    a second electrode disposed on a second surface of the substrate; and

    a transmitter unit configured for electrical communication with one or more of the first and second electrodes, and including a housing having a plurality of electrical contacts disposed thereon and configured for physical contact with a skin surface;

    wherein the plurality of electrical contacts are electrically coupled such that when the transmitter is positioned on the skin surface, one or more of the plurality of electrical contacts provide continuous electrical contact between the transmitter and the skin surface during a time period when at least a portion of the first electrode and the second electrodes are subcutaneously positioned under the skin surface.
