  • What OSes are you targeting specifically?

    Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 support Triggered Background Tasks. One of those Triggers is "Time Zone Changed". So basically you could simply call your Web Service to notify it about the change whenever there is an actual change in timezone.

    Aside from those you could run your update logic on the server only when new data comes in (thereby not requiring any task to run on the phone when there's no actual need to).

    Unfortunately Triggered Background Tasks are not available for WP8.0 yet.
