We investigate the measurement uncertainties of a triple of positive operator-valued measures (POVMs) based on statistical distance, and formulate state-independent tight uncertainty inequalities satisfied by the three measurements in terms of triple-wise joint measurability. Particularly, uncertainty inequalities for three unbiased qubit measurements are presented with analytical lower bounds which relates to the necessary and sufficient condition of the triple-wise joint measurability of the given triple. We show that the measurement uncertainties for a triple measurement are essentially different from the ones obtained by pair wise measurement uncertainties by comparing the lower bounds of different measurement uncertainties.
