I’m in the same boat as you and I’m on series 3....

I figured it out. Walkie Talkie is dependant on Facetime Audio so, if you removed the Facetime App from your iPhone, you don’t get the walkie talkie app on the watch. I just reinstalled FT, and walkie talkie came up on my watch

I did this but all I have now is an incomplete Walkie Talkie app icon. (Icon resembles an app before it installs)

No Walkie Talkie app on the watch app on the iPhone either.

I ended up pairing and repairing which is a pain. I had Facetime installed, restarted both the iPhone and Watch. This looks like an Apple bug to me.

As per the above post,

After unpairing and the re-pairing my watch to my phone the Walkie-Talkie app finally downloaded on to my Apple Watch.

Before I did the above I noticed my battery was dropping faster than normal so it was almost like the watch was constantly trying to install the app.

Walkie-Talkie is now working and my Apple Watch battery usage is back to normal.

Thank you. Your fix worked.
My iPhone had removed FaceTime Audio itself to save space of whatever it means where the little cloud thing is on it.
