1. A method, comprising:

  • generating with an analyte sensor a plurality of signals, wherein the plurality of signals have a signal characteristic independent of a measured analyte level of a user;

    determining, using an analyte monitoring device electrically coupled to the analyte sensor and in signal communication with the analyte sensor, whether the signal characteristic of the plurality of generated signals deviates from a predetermined signal characteristic corresponding to signal characteristics of a predetermined operational state of the analyte monitoring device, wherein the predetermined operational state corresponds to an individual one of a plurality of operational states of the analyte monitoring device, wherein each of the plurality of operational states have a corresponding signal characteristic, wherein the plurality of operational states includes an analyte sensor removal state and an analyte sensor insertion state;

    setting a present operational state of the analyte monitoring device based on the signal characteristic of the plurality of generated signals, wherein if the signal characteristic of the plurality of generated signals deviate from the predetermined signal characteristic corresponding to the predetermined operational state the present operational state will differ from the predetermined operational state;

    presenting an output data associated with an operational state of the analyte monitoring device and based at least in part on an analysis of one or more of the plurality of generated signals relative to a prior generated signal;

    anddetermining a new operational state of the analyte monitoring device based upon user input in response to the output data.
