Default Terminal Hard Drive Test

I was wondering if there is coming in the lInux Terminal that I can to text to see if a hard's health. Like a S.M.A.R.T drive programs, but for in linux and maybe for in terminal, since it be kind of built in? I don't know.

What I am planning is to have a USB drive, running Linux with tools and programs to help me diagnose Windows, Mac or Linux hardware and or software problems.
