In brief: Airdyne Bike

An airdyne bike has foot rests and handles for upper body motion.
Swimming would also be recommended.

In brief: Water exercise

Swimming or water aerobics are particular good for people who have sore joints or tendon problems.
Start gradually and build up (as with any exercise).

In brief: Swim

Achilles tendonitis can be aggravated with running, walking, stairmaster, aerobic exercises.
Swimming is an excellent way to get cardio exercise in while not stressing the achilles tendon.
