1. An analyte monitoring device, comprising:

  • a data storage unit; and

    one or more processors operatively coupled to the data storage unit and configured to retrieve instructions stored in the data storage unit to establish a communication path with a remote device when the remote device is placed within a predetermined distance from the analyte monitoring device, to determine when a transcutaneously positioned analyte sensor is initialized, to increment a count based on the determination, and to associate the incremented count with the transcutaneously positioned analyte sensor; and

    a communication module operatively coupled to the one or more processors and configured to transmit the incremented count to the remote device when the remote device is placed within the predetermined distance, wherein the identity of a new transcutaneously positioned analyte sensor is based on the incremented count.
