There’s a smart bottle on the market that might be able to help.

TCL Xess Tablet: The 17″ Amazon Alexa Connected Home Hub

We’ve got two TCL 4K Roku-enabled televisions in our house, and I feel like TCL is one of those brands that isn’t yet well-known, but they should be. TCL products are extremely well made, they work exactly as promised, and they are generally well priced.
