    My new iMac just bought in Apple store online has the following HD S.M.A.R.T. data:

    HD
    Power cycle count: 392
    Power on Time: 86 hours

    SSD 128gb (Fusion Drive)
    Power cycle count: 126
    Power on time: 124

    iMac Data production: september 2015
    Osx preisnstalled: 10.11.6

    I suspect it's not brand new.
    How is it possible?

    Because hard drives are tested during the manufacturing process before shipping.

    Drives and computers have burn in time, and that accounts for the SMART data you're seeing. I'd not be bothered by it.
