Are there any issues with turning the ADXL377 on and off rapidly to save power?

My application uses a small coin cell battery, where even 300uA of current is significant power usage. Are there any known issues with duty cycling the power for the ADXL377 sensor? For example turning it on for 2ms (letting it power up then taking a reading) then off again for 18ms, hence sampling at 50Hz.

 

Does cycling the power on and off like this have any adverse effect to the reliably of the sensor over time?

 

Thanks,

Chris.
