I have some very basic knowledge in magnetics:
- I know ferro- and neodymium magnets
- I know there are two poles of magnets (North and South)
- Magnets to magnets connections are strong pulling (in case different poles) and strong pushing (same poles)
- Magnets to metal connections are medium pulling (no matter of poles)
I bought some neodymium magnets, and played with it a bit. I have a smartwatch, and its back is somewhat super-strange for me:
- My neodymium magnet's one pole (I couldn't distinguish which one, let's say Northpole) pulls the watch's center very strongly
- The magnet's South pole pushes the center of the watch, and squeezes towards the circumference of the watch (with not-so-strong pulling)
- The watch itself is not magnetized, at least it doesn't pulls any metal thing, only other magnets.
How can the watch pulling only one pole of my magnet if the watch itself is not a magnet?
