They are both incubators.

Eggs need different conditions at hatch time, so unless you only hatch occasional small batches, it is easier to move the eggs that are just about to hatch to a different incubator. Then the hatching eggs can have their higher humidity and a door that you do not open again until all the chicks have hatched.

If you only get one, you buy an incubator and when it is hatching time, you remove the turner, increase the humidity, and lock down the incubator
