Again, when I visited the Star-Wars exposition this summer, I took a photo of Lando Calrissian's costume.

Lando's costume

I noticed the nice wrist device and made a close up of it :

Unitl now, I thought it was the Wrist link he used to call Lobot, but I just watched the scene and noticed it's not the same device :

Lando's Wrist link

What exactly is this wrist device on the costume?

    The first photo is Lando's general costume in Return of the Jedi. The blue costume with the wrist link is from Empire Strike Back. – Force Flow Dec 20 '12 at 17:44

    It's just another comm link of different design, – spiceyokooko Dec 20 '12 at 18:43
  • Are you guys sure it's not just the Star Wars equivalent of 'Gangsta Bling'? Lando was after all a bit of a bad boy in his past... – user11154 Dec 21 '12 at 11:18
  • It's a FitBit. Cheap Chinese knockoff of one, anyway. – Hack-R Sep 16 '16 at 4:39

The Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary factbook describes it as a "Wrist Comlink". There's no specific indication why he changed from his old model to this newer one.

As @spicey noted in the comment, it's still a wrist link, just a different model.

As noted in the article you linked to, there were many different wrist links. The one in the picture may have been "rebel leader" model (Bail Organa had a wrist link as well), or simply an updated iPhone device. Think of it as TGFFA smartphone.

  • In addition, every single detailed review of "General Lando Calrissian" Hasbro figure from Vintage Collection also mentions the wrist communicator/link. Hard to say how canonical that is. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 21 '12 at 4:33
