polar heartrate wearlink and nike+ with ipod touch 4g

I have the polar wearlink heartrate monitor that connects with my iPod nano 5th Generation. I received an iPod touch 4g for christmas and would like to continue using the hr monitor with it. Is there a way to get the touch 4g to read the signal from the polar heartrate monitor? Any help would be appreciated. And why didn't Apple give the touch the same settings under the nike+ heading as the ones on the nano? (pedometer, heartrate monitor link, etc.) Or if there is a software upgrade that adds the missing features? Love the fact that you don't need the receiver for the touch.
