The Irish sprinter clocked 21.86 seconds on Monday night with Poland's Mateusz Michalski second in 22.19.
Smyth was back in action at the London Stadium a day after securing a fourth world title in the T13 100m.
Meanwhile, Ballyclare's James Hamilton finished sixth in the T20 1500m final in a season's best of 4:01.78.
The Great Britain runner was over eight seconds behind winner Michael Brannigan of the United States.
Smyth will race for 200m gold in Tuesday night's final.
The visually-impaired athlete from County Londonderry was a double Paralympic gold medallist at the same stadium in 2012.
Smyth is unbeaten at Paralympic level since beginning his international career at the 2005 European Championships.
