The time zone offset returned
The value returned from getTimezoneOffset() is the number of minutes different from GMT/UTC time. To get the number of hours you need to divide the number returned by 60, noting that there are some timezones in the world that are not even 1 hour intervals (e.g. the Chatham Islands which is UTC +13:45 and New Delhi which is UTC +5:30).
One thing I have noticed is the number returned is the negative of what is expected. For example, I am in New Zealand and the expected offset at the moment is +13 (it’s currently daylight savings time here) because we are 13 hours ahead of UTC. However, the getTimezoneOffset() function returns -13 so this is something to watch out for.
Modifying the above example to get the timezone in hours:
