You can use the vizact.ontimer function to update the stop watch time. I created a simple wrapper class around this for starting/stopping the watch. Here is the sample script:
import viz

class StopWatch(object):
	def __init__(self):
		self.time = 0.0
		self._timer = vizact.ontimer(0,self._updateTime)
	def _updateTime(self):
		self.time += viz.elapsed()
	def start(self):
	def stop(self):
	def toggle(self):
#Create stop watch object
watch = StopWatch()

#Spacebar toggles stop watch
vizact.onkeydown(' ',watch.toggle)

#Create text object to display watch time
text = viz.addText('',parent=viz.ORTHO,fontSize=40)

#Setup timer to update text object with watch time every frame
def DisplayTime():
