1. An analyte monitoring device, comprising:

  • a counter; and

    a data processing section coupled to the counter, wherein the data processing section is configured to;

    establish a communication range between the analyte monitoring device and a remote device when the remote device is placed within a predetermined distance from the analyte monitoring device;

    determine when a transcutaneously positioned analyte sensor is initialized;

    increment a count stored in the counter based on the determination;

    associate the incremented count with the transcutaneously positioned analyte sensor; and

    transmit, using a communication module, the incremented count to the remote device when the remote device is placed within the established communication range, wherein the incremented count is used to verify the identity of the new transcutaneously positioned analyte sensor.
