"Savvy" is slang derived from the French word "savoir", which means "to know".

It can be used in many ways, to refer to 'intelligence' or specifically to 'street smarts', as in "Don't worry about him, he'll be alright, he is pretty savvy". Means, he knows what is going on, or catches on quickly, kind of idea.

When it doesn't refer to intelligence, it usually refers to 'understanding'. For example, in his "Pirates of the Caribbean" series movies, Johnny Depp's character "Captain Jack Sparrow" constantly asks 'Savvy?' to people, after he has explained something.
In this context it means, 'do you understand?' or, "Ya know?"
