I do not use 'hddtemp' but try using 'smartctl -x /dev/sdN' or 'smartctl -a /dev/sdN' N=your device;
partial sample output;

excerpt man smartctl;
   -a, --all
              Prints all SMART information about the disk, or TapeAlert information about the tape drive or changer.  For ATA devices this is equivalent to
              ´-H -i -c -A -l error -l selftest -l selective´
              and for SCSI, this is equivalent to
              ´-H -i -A -l error -l selftest´.
              Note that for ATA disks this does not enable the non-SMART options and the SMART options which require support for 48-bit ATA commands.

   -x, --xall
              Prints all SMART and non-SMART information about the device. For ATA devices this is equivalent to
              ´-H -i -g all -c -A -f brief -l xerror,error -l xselftest,selftest
              -l selective -l directory -l scttemp -l scterc -l sataphy´.
              and for SCSI, this is equivalent to
              ´-H -i -A -l error -l selftest -l background -l sasphy´.
