  • Publication number: 20210212132
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods are disclosed for wireless communication of analyte data. In this regard, in embodiments, a mobile includes a transceiver configured to transmit and receive wireless signals. The mobile device includes circuitry operatively coupled to the transceiver. The mobile device also includes a non-transitory computer-readable medium operatively coupled to the circuitry and storing instructions that, when executed, cause the mobile device to perform a number of operations. One such operation is to obtain a derivative of a first signal received via a first link. Another such operation is to obtain a derivative of a second signal received via a second link; and. Yet another such operation is to generate a selection for connection to an analyte sensor system, based on a comparison of the derivative of the first signal and the derivative of the second signal.
