From kentico's documentation.

Widgets are pre configured web parts.

Every widget is based on a web part. You can create widgets with the same functionality as most web parts in the system. If you require a widget with completely new custom functionality, you need to develop an appropriate web part first.

One more note:

  • Web part properties and data stored within are considered template depended
  • Widget properties and data stored within are considered page depended as they are considered page content
