So your saying it controls the ship?
That does not make sense because she was wearing it in Space Pilot 3000 before she joined planet express.

It's her 'wrist-lo-jack-imator.'  It's just a generic 'futur-y' thing that she wears to remind us that this show is set way beyond our time.

Plus it does all sorts of cool things lie control the ship, track homing signals, and apparently it was made by Mom's Robot Company (it revolted along with the other robots in "Mother's day" ).

LMAO, Yeah!  Remember that one episode when she's like "this thing on my arm!"  I dun' remember the full sentence was, but it was kind of funny that she didn't even know what it was called.  But I agree what FilthyCrab said.

Analyzing a "food sample" in "The Problem With Popplers":

Leela: "Hmm, this thing I wear on my wrist says they're not poisenous."

But if it's a cloudy day, forget about it.

And it's not like Leela has the only wristlojackamater.  Amy has a small one, the Wongs both have one, etc.  I'm assuming they're the watches of the future.  Think of all the gizmos on them, however, like the features on cell phones nowadays.

Amy has one?  I don't remember ever seeing one on her... What episode was that on?

I think Leela's arm thingy is made by the same company that made the electronic book in Inspector Gadget cartoons.

That book could do everything you want it to do when the script needed it to do something.

That was awesome.

Leela's arm thingy is also a communicator, you see this in "Space Pilot 3000" when she requests back up from Smitty and URL when chasing Fry.

Are you sure the one Amy's wearing isn't just a watch?  It looks kinda small to me... unless it's just the weird angle that the picture's at, or her sleeve's covering up the other half.

Is that the only picture that shows Amys wrist thingy? Or do we see it lots? Is it ever mentioned?

In "Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch" it's used to make entries in Amy's calendar, so it's clearly a communication device.

I think Leela's wristlojackamator is a powerful communication-device and all-purpose tool used by the army and law-enforcement. Note how we only see it on Smitty, URL and Leela (FAO corps), and it's often used in ways that could be useful for those branches: tracking, analyzing samples, communication on restricted frequencies, etc. Clearly a governemtn issue.

The variations used by Amy, Cubert, the Wongs and others are civilian models, and somewhat less advanced. Almost like a modern cellphone, notebook PC and internet access rolled into one, cool-looking wristband.

The real issue is: how did Leela manage to hold on to hers after she quit her job? I think Ipji simply forgot about it, afterall he didn't officially fire Leela until a year later.

And he still hope she'll come back to the FAO corps, so it might be a sub-conscious decision.

Yeah, i thought it was like a watch also scince amy wore one too but after i saw that they were the only ones that used it i discarded that option.

ANOTHER THING SHE CAN DO WITH IT IS CHECK THE GRAVITY AND OXIGEN STATUS OF THE SHIPO FROM IT

It's an universal electronic device that can do anything when you push one of the two buttons it has.

Maybe he didn't assign her the wrist thingy. Chances are he told her to buy one instead of supplying one for her.

Could be. The problem with that solution is that it destroys my little theory that they're restricted, goverenment issues, and that the models Amy and Cubert use are the civilian versions.

Leela's arm thingy was just some feature of Leela. But they have used it in episodes for some gags

the smaller ones are just plain communicators, but Leela's model is for the professional,outdoors,outrspace,active lifestyle user, you need more funcionality and robustness to withstand the rigours of Kung-Fu and Intergalactic travel.

Nokia and Motorola take note, the technology is here. Imagine a 3G cellular wrist,video phone with voice recognition, a full colour FOLED display, bluetooth/WiFi interface and lightweight Lithium-Polymer battery.
They could call it a 'wrist-lo-jack-imator' too
