"Restarting with stat" vs. "Restarting with reloader"

My console says "Restarting with stat", Kenneth's says "Restarting with reloader". Everything seems to be working fine I'm just curious what these mean and why they're different.

One of the packages installed in workspaces for the flask projects, werkzeug, has been updated since the video creation. The change indicates a different method being used to detect local changes in files which trigger an auto-reload of the files while the server is running. More on Werkzeug - The Python WSGI Utility Library and GitHub

In short, nothing to be worried about.
