SMART only predicts about half of failures, so it's not really that great a panacea.   Backups are the answer.  Find a method that you can use sustainably.  And retire drives from being the primary storage location after 5 years of use.  They can still be used for other functions, but don't let it be a point of failure where you lose all work since your last backup.
