Re: weight of water bottleThe 440g cans are easy to hold. If you want something heavier, do you have the 2L milk containers with the handles? or the 1L round milk bottles??? - wash when empty and fill with water and exercise on a floor thats easy to clean/mop up just in case.....
Or ask for some one kg dumbbells for an early birthday pressie

Re: weight of water bottleThis is slightly easier than you realise;
Water - 1 litre = 1 kilogram.
If you consistently use the same container, what ever it may be, you shouldn't need to worry about the weight of the vessel which in the case of a 'Cool Franklin Pump" bottle will be a few insignificant grams anyway.

Re: weight of water bottleIf your wanting something heavier, you know as you get stronger, fill the bottles up with sand/dirt.
