Under Armour Inc., the maker of athletic clothing and gear, is acquiring the MyFitnessPal and Endomondo applications for a total of about $560 million in a bid to become the world’s biggest tracker of fitness information.

The two apps will complement the company’s current software -- MapMyFitness and UA Record -- giving it a total of 120 million users, according to a statement Wednesday. The company also reported better-than-projected results for the fourth quarter. (For more coverage on M&A among fitness companies, see The Buyside: Deal Pros Shape Up With Fitness Plays.)
