Fit will not update, just an exclamation point

I just recently got a Galaxy Fit (SM-R370NZKAXAR). It was one sale. I charged it, downloaded the wearables app, and paired it. There was a notice about to update the band software. I downloaded it and attempted to install it. The installation failed and the app said to try again later; while the Fit simply had an exclamation point (!) on the screen and would do nothing. 


I have tried updating the software more than a dozen times, with the same result. Sometimes the progress "clock" gets to around 20%, sometimes 80%. The highest was over 90%.


I have reset the Fit several times and re-paired it; but, it has made no difference.


I have uninstalled the wearable app from my phone and re-installed it; but, it has made no difference.


Now, I cannot even use it without the update, as after a reset, once it's paired with my phone, I get the exclamation point.


Any ideas, ohter than using it as a light-weight paperweight?

Back up, unpair, turn off charge full then turn on repair with phone restore and try updating then. Try to have full charge and good Wi-Fi signal.

Re: Fit will not update, just an exclamation point

Thanks. I did hte following:

Full charge on Fit, phone charged & plugged in.
Unpaired the Fit and reset it.
Turned the Fit off.
Turn Fit on ("52E1" displayed).
Paired the Fit & phone.
Upon finishing pairing, the Fit displayed the exclamation point (!).
Selected update band software --> install --> install now.
Software began installing, progress displayed on Fit.
Sometime after 60% it stopped and went back to the exclamation point (!).
App says, "Couldn't update software. Try again later."


I guess I wish the Fit was heavier, as then it would be a decent paperweight.
