The drive is less than a year old, so I really hope that's not it.
Nonetheless, here's the output:

root at presbyter:jtr 🚴  smartctl -a /dev/sdc | grep -i wear
233 Media_Wearout_Indicator 0x0013   100   100   000    Pre-fail  Always       -       2622

(And yes, that bicycle emoji is part of my prompt. It looks much better
in a Linux terminal on my Pixelbook as it's full-color.)

The "-" is in the "WHEN_FAILED" column. 

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's
character, give him power.
