Users with Android 5.0.X MAY have problems connecting CASIO watches using BlueWatcher because CASIO announced there is a problem between Android 5.0 Bluetooth Drivers and CASIO bluetooth modules that can be extended to other phone models. See announcement: http://blesupport.g-shock.com/uk/en/ (12/26/2014)
As you can read in the official link of CASIO G-Shock, you can contact CASIO Support Center. We contacted them and they can repair Casio Bluetooth watches in order to connect using Android 5.0.X. We sent all our watches to the Spanish Casio Support Center and the watches are back again working in Android 5.0.2 using BlueWatcher.
There are other known problems that may affect your phone:
Bad Bluetooth BLE implementation is a known issue with Android 5.0. You can find more information here: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2014/12/01/nexus-lollipop-problems-fixes/
BlueWatcher is based on Bluetooth Profiles. Bluetooth profiles are definitions of possible applications and specify general behaviors that Bluetooth enabled devices use to communicate with other Bluetooth devices.
Talking about "Bluetooth Profiles" is tedious!!!
BlueWatcher was created from scratch and tested by the XDA Developers Community. BlueWatcher was tested against all SmartWatches with ANP and CTS Bluetooth Profile.
Mainly, the supported watches were all CASIO Bluetooth models. BlueWatcher has been tested by several XDA Community members so we can say outright that it is running like a charm with next watches. If you have problems with any of the supported watch models, please, contact us through Support Mail (It will work surely!)

CASIO SPORTS STB-1000
This watch has only OFFICIAL support for iPhones!
The purpose of this watch is to check personal fitness data from popular mobile apps. But it incorporated same functionality as their G-SHOCK 6900 brothers. So the watch can receive notifications and time synchronization too.

BlueWatcher has been tested too with this model. It works! But, at the moment, you loose personal fitness data monitoring and music control.
