According to this you "blackout" at 50% SpO2. According to this you die at 50% SpO2.
What is the 'safest' absolute minimum one would go down to for dry training using a finger SpO2 meter just to know what getting to and dealing with such levels feels like?

Entirely different situation. In the first you are holding your breath... in the second oxygen is being taken out of you by altitude.

and thus why altitude medicine and diving medicine are different fields.
