Smart Trainer

This is a basic question about Smart turbo trainers. I am recovering from having had a full depth rupture of my Achillies tendon and want to start riding using a turbo trainer, yet to be purchased, The question is can you set the resistance to a fix low wattage? I realise that they can automatically vary the resistance based on "route terrain" but currently I have been advised to stick to a low resistance setting for the moment. If this is possible is it possible for all smart turbo trainers? 

If yes I can see I may be on the spend again.

Thanks for the forthcoming info

    Agreed on that, he was definitely part of my first week plans! Not to mention my French riders team - that is in tatters without Le Coq!
