Works with smartmontools 6.0, but all versions need -d sat.

That can be made permanent by adding to /etc/smart_drivedb.h

/* 13 Feb 2017 
   The following is sufficient to make smartctl no longer require -d sat
   with a 2TB Seagate Expansion Portable.
   It's adding the "1a".

   /dev/sdb: Unknown USB bridge [0x0bc2:0x231a (0x707)]
   Please specify device type with the -d option.
  { "USB: Seagate Expansion Portable; ",
    "", // 12=0x0219, 22=0x0000
    "-d sat"
