Disclosed herein is an analyte sensing device capable of continuously monitoring metabolic levels of a plurality of analytes. The device comprises an external unit, which, for example, could be worn around the wrist like a wristwatch or could be incorporated into a cell phone or PDA device, and an implantable sensor platform that is suitable, for example, for implantation under the skin. The external device and the internal device are in wireless communication. In one embodiment, the external device and the internal device are operationally linked by a feedback system. In one embodiment, the internal device is encapsulated in a biocompatible coating capable of controlling the local tissue environment in order to prevent/minimize inflammation and fibrosis, promote neo-angiogenesis and wound healing and this facilitate device functionality.
