Anti-magnetic iphone case

Does anyone know if these exist? The magnetic field from my iphone is crazy strong, making it difficult to avoid subjecting my watches to it....also probably not healthy. A compass registers it even 18-20" away. Ideal would be a phone case that contains / blocks the field.

The only thing that seems to come up is protection from RF & ELF radiation and/or RFID blocking

I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

Seems like something that could block the magnetic field would also shield your phone from the RF it needs to communicate. Maybe use a Bluetooth earpiece so you can leave the phone in your backpack and still make/receive calls (no experience with this).

This would also keep the RF farther away from you. There's still the Bluetooth RF, of course, but I understand it is much weaker -- it only has to communicate with your phone, not the faraway cell tower.
