Magnet directly to gopro 7

Hi,

 

just wondering if permanently afixing a neodynium magnet to a gopro 7 would have adverse affects to the funcationality of the camera. i've seen the magnetic swivel mount but i need something even lower profile. i was thinking of mounting it to the bottom of the camera just to hold it out of the way and from flopping when i wear it with a lanyard. There would be a corresponding metal plate or another magnet mounted to my backpack shoulder strap or suspenders of my fishing waders. thanks for your insight!

Not sure, but depending on how strong the magnet is, it could affect the recording process as data is saved to the SD card. If there's some space between the magnet and the camera body though, it may be ok.
