In 2020, Under Armour, which is currently the 65th retailer on RIS News’ Top 100 ranking, took a massive step toward a consumer-direct focus by consolidating its app ecosystem and aligning under a single e-commerce platform, selling off MyFitnessPal and discontinuing its Endomondo digital fitness platform.
