There is software that can tell you roughly. For example CrystalDiskInfo has a "health status" but most importantly, you can see if there has been any reallocated sectors or retired blocks. The latter is a sure sign of imminent failure soon(tm). My first ssd from 2014 is still working great. I've had plenty of hdd's that were performing great but just randomly died without any warning signs whatsoever. However my old Samsung F3 is still working and it's older than my first ssd by a couple of years.
