Have you used Wi-Fi module before? Arduino and Wi-Fi module 'WizFi310' are used in this project to send a HTTP POST Request to Ubidot. Like this example, you can request a HTTP REST API to other server using a WizFi310.
I want to make a watch, that can check my location and time. So I decided to make this watch using Wi-Fi module (WizFi250) and Cortex-M0 MCU (WIZwiki-W7500). For getting geolocation of this watch, I used ip-api.com which is a geolocation server and I used NTP server for getting the current time.

Getting weather information with "WiFi shield" using "OpenWeatherMap API".
When you have data you want to know or data you want to manage separately, you usually buy the server for private use and manage the data through that server. However, the IoT cloud service does not require individuals to buy a server, so cloud users can easily use various IoT services and information at a glance. Ubidots is one of the leading IoT web cloud service providers, providing charts for data, controller provisioning and table creation. However, if you have WiFi in Arduino, you can easily use this cloud service. So it's easy to use with OrangeBoard WiFi! In this article, we will create a button that connects to Ubidots and controls the LED using WiFi.
