How do I get coaches eye to record 120fps video on iPhone 7 (at any resolution)?

My old iPhone 5s would do 720p120 no problem and became my most valuable coaching tool.  I quickly filled its memory and decided to upgrade for a larger screen and better hardware but I'm forced to choose between 1080p60 (not slow enough) and 720p240 (too slow).  120fps works perfectly for my sport of Short Track Speed Skating and it's frustrating that I have to choose between the perfect frame rate and the better phone, so I find that I'm using the program less and less.

I'm no software engineer but I've looked at the Apple Developer webpage for Cameras and I don't understand why this feature cannot be enabled:
  • High Frame Rate (HFR) / Slow Motion Video

    To capture high frame rate video (and thus support smooth slow motion by playing back captured video at a lower frame rate), set the AVCaptureDeviceactiveFormat property to an AVCaptureDeviceFormat option whose videoSupportedFrameRateRanges property includes a high (120 FPS or greater) frame rate. Then, when capturing video, set the device’s  activevideoMinFrameDuration and activeVideoMaxFrameDuration properties to reflect the frame rate you wish to use for capture. 

    For example, to capture at 120 FPS on a device that supports 240 FPS capture, choose the format whose maximum frame rate is 240 FPS, then set the active min and max frame duration to CMTimeMake(1, 120).

Coaches Eye v6.0.2
iOS 10.3.3
iPhone 7 256GB

Any help is appreciated.
