Code Climate vs Gerrit Code Review: What are the differences?

Developers describe Code Climate as "Automated Ruby Code Review". After each Git push, Code Climate analyzes your code for complexity, duplication, and common smells to determine changes in quality and surface technical debt hotspots. On the other hand, Gerrit Code Review is detailed as "OpenSource Git Code Review Tool". Gerrit is a self-hosted pre-commit code review tool. It serves as a Git hosting server with option to comment incoming changes. It is highly configurable and extensible with default guarding policies, webhooks, project access control and more.
