What is the difference between an exercise bike and ergometer?

Unlike an exercise bike, an ergometer allows you to set a precise and calibrated wattage.

On the exercise bike, on the other hand, the resistance setting is only step-controlled. 

This means that an ergometer can be preset to precise values, some of which are specified by the cardiologist/medical practitioner.
