Wow ... I use (and LOVE) the Spin Doctor:

But I see they are no longer being made ... oh no!! I guess we'll all need to keep our eyes out. Precise charging of magnet gauss is ESSENTIAL to producing great sounding pickups!!!

I'll report back if I find anything.

Okay ... so With the spin Dr no longer available ... here are a couple of things I found that seem like they would work well and not be too expensive:

This one is kinda clunky ... but it measures in mT (good) and shows N and S orientation ... only possible issue is it only reads to 2000mT, and some neo pickup magnets will exceed that ... but VERY few!

Now, if ya have a PC at your bench anyway ... this looks interesting:

Gauss level is, in fact Soooooooooo important ti a pickup's tone. As a matter of fact, I just decided I'll post a blog on it's importance and details! So check the blog section out.
