I checked Wikipedia, Futurama Wiki, and The Infosphere: None of them mentions what the device she has on her right forearm is.

Leela and a freehand circle

What is that?

    The drop shadow on the red circle really impressed me, for some reason. Good work! :) – Brett White Jul 6 '12 at 18:13

    Sci-fi writers often incorporate a generic gadget into their plotlines which can be used to fulfill any need a character may encounter. If you listen to the futurama commentaries, the writers discuss how Bender's chest is used for this purpose. On Doctor Who, the sonic screwdriver serves this purpose. Leela's wrist band has the same use, and its purpose varies depending on what the plot requires / what is funny. – Darth Egregious Jul 6 '12 at 20:59

It's a multi-function device that Leela specifically referred to as her Wristlojackimator in the episode "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back". All other mentions she makes of it are general and vague (i.e. "this thing I wear on my wrist" or "my wrist thingy").

The functions/abilities of her "wrist thingy" are:

In addition, as NominSim mentions in a comment, Leela keeps the bracelet she was found with as a child underneath it ("Leela's Homeworld").

    She keeps the bracelet that her parents gave her when they left her at the orphanage underneath it too. – NominSim Jul 6 '12 at 17:00
