1. A method for assembling an on-body device comprising a glucose sensor assembly, a housing, and sensor electronics,
wherein the glucose sensor assembly comprises a proximal section comprising a connector support coupled with a proximal portion of a glucose sensor,
wherein the housing comprises a top portion, a base portion, and a first space defined by the top portion and the base portion, wherein the base portion comprises a recess in a bottom exterior surface, wherein the recess comprises a distal-facing opening, and wherein the recess defines a second space different from the first space,
the method comprising:
positioning the sensor electronics within the first space of the on-body device, wherein the sensor electronics comprise a processor, a wireless communications facility, a battery, and a printed circuit board;
after positioning the sensor electronics within the first space, inserting the connector support through the distal-facing opening of the recess in the bottom exterior surface of the base portion and into the recess, causing the glucose sensor to electrically couple with the sensor electronics.
