Domino’s Delivers a New App for Pebble and Android Wear to Track your Pizza

March 2, 2015 - Written By Cory McNutt

Mobile World Congress (MWC) has a little bit of everything – even a new application introduced by Domino’s to take care of your important pizza cravings.  The app works on a Pebble smartwatch or any Android Wear powered smartwatch and you cannot only order your delectable pizza pie, but you may track it as it makes its way from the oven to its destination.  All one needs to do to begin ordering and tracking their pizza is to: obviously download the app onto your Pebble or Android Wear smartwatch, setup a ‘Pizza Profile,’ via a saved ‘Easy Order’ or recent order.

Kevin Vasconi, Domino’s Pizza chief information officer said, “Pairing Domino’s with smartwatch technology couldn’t be more of a natural fit.  We are constantly looking for ways to use technology to enhance our customers’ experience and provide them with more convenience.  We pride ourselves on having a variety of online ordering options for customers to choose from.”

From their news wire sent out, Domino’s reminds us that they are the “recognized world leader in pizza delivery” – which is certainly true as most people think of Pizza Hut for dining-in pizza, but when it comes to home/work delivery, Domino’s is the one.  They concentrate on making and delivering pizzas – no sit down, waitress-style table delivery.  Their smartphone application is now supplemented by an app that resides directly on your Pebble or Android Wear smartwatch, thus making it easier than ever to order and track that pizza.  With the Domino’s Tracker app you can follow the complete progress – your order from the time it is taken, placed in the oven and when it is ready for pickup or delivery.

Domino’s is a franchise pizza delivery chain with its corporate headquarters in Ann Arbor Charter Township, Michigan.  Founded in 1960, it is the second-largest pizza chain in the US…after Pizza Hut…but the largest worldwide with over 10,000 stores in 70 countries.  After poor results from pizza surveys done in 2009 – they tied last with Chuck E Cheese’s – Domino’s decided that they needed to reinvent themselves.  Since that time many changes have been made to increase quality and offer many other products – they even dropped the word ‘Pizza’ from its name to signify their menu’s diversity.
