The statement on the Official Site read
Tommy Smith has signed a four-year contract with Pompey.
The 29-year-old forward joins from Watford for an undisclosed fee.
He said he was delighted to be at Fratton Park.
"I spoke to Paul Hart and it sounded brilliant. Everything down here is certainly what I was looking for and I`m sure I`ve made the right decision.
"The supporters here are well renowned for being fantastic, loyal and very, very noisy.
"When I`ve played here the atmosphere`s been electric and it`ll be nice to play on the right side of them this time, so I`m looking forward to it."
Blues boss Paul Hart said: "I`ve liked Tommy for a long time. He`s clever, infectious, enthusiastic and a hard worker.
"He can play as a centre-forward, behind the centre-forward or out wide, so covers a lot of positions. He`s going to be a great asset to us."
Smith scored 17 times for Watford in the Championship last season, with another nine assists.
Happy playing through the centre or wide on the right, Smith has already got on the scoresheet twice for the Hornets this season.
Smith has had two seasons in the Premier League with Watford, the most recent in 2006/7.
He spent a year at Sunderland and another two at Derby before returning for his second spell Vicarage Road.
Smith is Pompey`s sixth signing of the summer following the captures of Frederic Piquionne, Aaron Mokoena, Steve Finnan, Antti Niemi and Anthony Vanden Borre.
