My pool water test results always reflects high water hardness.

I notice the many advertisements for "Magnetic" hardwater treatments. Are these clamp on devices effective at reducing the water hardness level, or they just gimmics?

These magnetic devices claim to change the structure of the calcium, preventing it from forming scale. They will not reduce the hardness level at all.

I have tried one of these on our home water line with not apparent improvement. There are some units which come with a guarantee, but only by observing the scaling will you be able to note its effectiveness.

You should try tackle the water hardness problem itself rather than trying to mask its effects.
