The smartmontools package contains two utility programs (smartctl and smartd) to control and monitor storage systems using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology System (SMART) built into most modern ATA and SCSI harddisks. In many cases, these utilities will provide advanced warning of disk degradation and failure.
Provides accurate SMART data via CLI with granular control of the data. Unlike other software that attempts to replicate or shorten the data provided by drives, Smartmontools is legitimately capable of interpreting and displaying accurate and up to date information and interfaces appropriately with drives.

hexploder Small, easy, complete, don't know how to use it just smartctl -h or man smartctl and you will have all the documentation you need.
Shows the most detailed information about the OEM NVMe drive that comes with my PC - comes with the most fresh disk database and presents particular device S.M.A.R.T data in most readable form (if you can read from console that is.)
