Leaving the timer console running should be OK so long as you've got the 50g connected to external power. I've never tried that scenario just using battery power, but it should deplete the batteries at the same rate as any other continuously-running application.

You could also consider creating some simple RPL programs to start/stop/split given timers, as all of the stopwatch functions are programmable.
